Palo Pinto Creek Retreat
This was my first time using my RTT and this location was ideal. It was secluded and the site had enough room for my portable shower, toilet and canopy. For those wanting to fish, the river is really close by. The hosts were friendly and welcoming. I was able to enter and exit with my two-wheel drive truck with no issues. Palo Pinto Creek is a site I will visit again.

We tent-camped at this site and definitely enjoyed our stay. Pretty much had the place to ourselves, except for a few geese and chickens. We could hear cows in the next field, and the train came through a few times, but quite a peaceful spot all around and felt like we had really left the city. My young kids had a blast throwing rocks in the river and digging in the dirt. I actually slept pretty great! And the bugs weren't bad at all (April, maybe not late enough yet to get bad - good to know!). I did pick up a few pieces of stray trash that did not feel super welcoming and outhouse is definitely primitive with a few friendly wasps in the upper corner, but for heaven's sake - it's camping!! It's all part of the fun! If you want more than that, there's always a hotel somewhere *cheeky grin*

Stopped here overnight in a road trip. It was rustic but did the job and was very convenient to the interstate. They were very accommodating about me arriving pretty late and booking last minute.

Good waypoint when crossing Texas!
Stayed here on a cross country trip. Fast, easy access from I-20 so not a major detour which was important to me. Rustic place - it’s a farm! But it was quiet and restful with friendly hosts.

Gorgeous spot close to Mineral Well
Fabulous camping area - steep slope allowed for good privacy. Loved watching the turtles and other wildlife. Travis and his fam were very accomodating. We pitched tent and were able to watch the sunrise over the creek and enjoyed a fire in the nice-sized pit.

Fish and paddle near Mineral wells!
Private camping spot right on the water. Awesome fishing and paddling spot. Rock trail leads down a steep incline to flat camping area on the river with plenty of trees. Recommend 4x4 if you tow a trailer else area is accessible for 2wheel drive. Bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper as there is a railway near by. Travis is great to provide a hose for potable water refill.
